I always admire the Z06, mostly because I am a five-foot-nine dude who looks absolutely and spectacularly ridiculous seated in a big Corvette. I can’t own one. I can drive them, if it’s at night. They’re not my size or my vibe, and are consequently off limits. I leave Corvette ownership to the bigger and brasher humans of this planet.
This does mean I spend a lot of time thinking about Corvettes and staring at them. All of this thinking and staring has led me to the above conclusion: the C6 Z06 is aging really, wonderfully, joyously well.
It’s hard to grasp in pictures just how low and wide they are in person. These Z06s are 3.3 inches wider (thanks to carbon fiber fenders) than the ordinary Corvette on which they’re based. The effect completely transforms the look of the car from retiring, Florida-hogging grandpa to lunging, road-sniffing attack dog.
There’s a little snout on the car, breathing in a little extra air for the 7.0 liter small block under the hood.
